Injured on the job? There may be a product liability claim

This episode of The Beasley Allen Report takes a look at a case where a construction worker was seriously injured on the job when the equipment he was using did not have proper safety mechanisms. Program host Gibson Vance welcomes Beasley Allen Attorney Mike Andrews, who worked on this case. Often, cases that involve personal injury may be traced back to a defective product (product liability).

This area of law examines cases where a product fails and causes injury or death to someone. Mike explains that lawyers explore questions such as whether the product could have been designed differently, manufactured differently, or if there should have been warnings presented to the user to prevent injury. In many cases, Mike says, on-the-job injuries that appear to involve only a Workers Compensation claim turn out to be related to product liability.

Following this case, a temporary safety mechanism was installed on the equipment involved in this case, and the manufacturer modified the product design to prevent future injuries.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
